User Groups User groups allow educators to organize student accounts, making it easier to manage the student roster in various places. All educators can create and manage their own user groups in ways that make sense for them. User groups are only seen by the educator that created them, and therefore, cannot be shared with other educators. Creating a User Group

Monitoring Students

Edgenuity has a variety of ways to monitor students as a whole. Some key reports are outlined below, but feel free to check out some additional reports in our Report Library

Multiple Student Reports

Dashboard

Is there a place to find real-time data on my students' progress?

Alerts There are three different icons shown under the 'Alert' column, what do they mean?  The orange alert means the student is waiting a review of his/her work before s/he can access the assessment. The yellow alert means the student has submitted work that needs grading. The red alert means the student is out of retakes on an assessment. 
Progress tab vs Course tab What is the difference between the Progress tab and the Course tab?  The Progress tab displays each student's basic information for each course- their grade, start date, target date, date of first grade, date of last grade, days since last action, target completion, and progress.

The Course tab provides details specific to individual student courses. This page is useful when comparing students assigned to the same course, as it provides a graphical representation of student progress.
Interpreting Dates and Progress on the Dashboard There looks like a lot of information on this page. What are the key data metrics to monitor?  Some of the key data to monitor to are: Start Date, Target Date, First Grade, Last Grade, Days Since Last Action, Target Completion, and Progress

Managing Enrollments

Is there a page where I can keep an eye on student's overall performance in a course? I'd like to track their progress, pacing, grade, and even the last time they had a gradebook entry. 

Active Tab Is there a list of all my student enrollments? Accessing the Active Enrollments
Action Buttons What are all the actions that can be taken with an enrollment? Action Buttons
Other Tabs What do the other tabs, other than Active, do? Manage Enrollments tabs
